Folkscanomy: Books on Film and Cinema

Folksonomy: A system of classification derived from the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content; this practice is also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, and social tagging. Coined by Thomas Vander Wal, it is a portmanteau of folk and taxonomy.

Folkscanomy: A collection of books and text derived from the efforts of volunteers to make information as widely available as possible. Because the metadata related to these scanned books are often done outside the library or cataloging industries, finding material can be more difficult. The Folkscanomy collection attempts to add a layer of classification for easier navigation.

This collection is Folkscanomy Cinema.

Forget Les Cahiers de Cinema . Forget the auteur theory. Forget subtleties of lighting or narrative technique or the great moments of screen acting. This book tells you what you need to know before you shell out good money for a cinema seat or settle down in front of your video. How much bum and tit are you going to see? And whose? Covering (or rather uncovering) a wide range of films from the obvious (like Beyond the Valley of the Dolls ) to the more subtle (like Zardoz ) and the real...
